Re: Charlie Christian pickup
Seymour Duncan FAQ #41 mentions Charlie Christian and cites patent 2,087,106.  
 
This 1937 patent describes a complete guitar (not just the pickup, which is not described). The inventor is one "Guy Hart", and the invention is assigned to Gibson.  
 
I don't know if Guy and Charlie are the same person, or not.  
 
The US Patent Office search facility works only for patents granted from 1976 to present, although one can find older patents if they are referenced in searchable patents.
